There is no way of getting out of this situation unless we come up with some new type of technology's or anything really that we can sell. We have nothing left in the west, we dont make anything. The UK relies on the financial institutions for the majority of its income. It does not create things or jobs, just imaginary money on a screen. I dont know what the solution is. Massive cuts in public spending can only go so far. Our economies rely on people consuming things. If no one has any disposable income then the consumption stops, which means more business closures, more unemployment.
It's easy to get depressed over the future, but from personal experience a positive mindset will be essential to get through this. Negativity will just make things worse. There is only so much you can personally do about this situation, a negative mindset and worry will lead to despair, a positive mindset will always remain hopeful.
